appleman, whose creativity spans a long life filled with verse, fiction, philosophy, science, religion, and above all, moments of every day experience captured like the glint of the sun sparkling through a crystal glass. just take a look at a sample of his legacy -- "darwin," "apes and angeles," "darwin's ark," "in the twelfth year of the war," "open doorways," and this, my favorite -- "summer love and surf," about the joys and wonders of loving and living. his latest book of poems is "perfidious proverbs." a fellow poet said that to watch philip appleman "sling words is to be richly regaled." i quite agree. welcome, philip. >> wonderful to be here, bill. >> i have long thought of poetry as music to be heard best in the voice of the composer. so let's go right to some of your poems. >> good. i love it. >> here's one of my favorites. and i think it's one of your favorites, too.

. >> but it's made bill o'reilly take the position that christianity is not a religion. >> that's awesome >> bill: in what sense. >> o'reilly said a christmas tree but it's a sort of a christmas symbol but christianity is not a religion. it's a philosophy. >> really? >> he actually said this. if you don't understand that christianity is not a religion you are a dummy. it was almost like o'reilly was channelling stephen colbert like a drunk stephen colbert. if you haven't caught that segment, it was breath-taking. >> bill: it came up to me again. we had our white house correspondents association, the first party of the year first christmas party, wasn't even in december. they had it on the 29th of november. and so, you know it was awkward because i walked in, and i said like, merry christmas to somebody. and they said, happy holidays. and then i said happy holidays to somebody and they said, no, you can say merry christmas to me. i am thinking jesus. get off. careful here. >> happeny holidays? they are judging you? you know, the war on christmas thing,
design and other theories, do it in religion class. and the important part with rubio is while he does seem to be tempering his first line now with mike allen yesterday after he got a lot of criticism for it he still believes fundamentally that you should teach creationism alongside evolution in classes. that's really where this comes from. his history when he was in florida as a state house speaker was a huge fight over evolution education in florida. he came down on the side of the creationists saying they should be able to teach that in school. a reasonable alternative to evolution. whether or not rubio thinks the earth is 4 billion years old he also believes some of the nonscientific theories should be taught. >> people should be able to teach the opposite alongside of evolution and alongside of science in public schools. he's saying in public schools. in other words -- is the same position as rick santorum, correct? >> actually, same position as rick santorum, chris christie has said this. >> bill: has he real
the in gay marriage. but i believe everyone should have the right to practice their religion and love how the 12. these right-wingers -- there are a lot of democrats that did not believe in gay marriage, but we do not believe we should be able to stop anyone from mary in who they want. this is like the caliban. you have these right-wing groups. the right-wingers would be the taliban. there are a lot of things they do not want. this is how they believe it. in the end, got is the one to judge. host: this is the republican line. caller: i think it is interesting the last guy started off by saying he is against the idea of gay marriage but he calls us conservatives the taliban. if he happens to be a hyphenated american, most black people are against this. martin luther king would have been against this. host: about the decision to the hear the cases, what do you think. caller: one of the things i find interesting is we never talk about the hundreds of thousands of men who have died and joe america because of sex outside of natural law. we rolled a " out once a year and add a couple of patches
in any way is an establishment of religion. there is no officially supported secretary or denomination in the manner, this is not in any way an endorsement of any particular religion or any religious denomination. in short the first amendment as originally written had nothing to do with the city sign. indeed, for the first 175 years of our constitutional history, no one would have read the first amendment in this way. they would have -- any way that would have prevented this seal or sign. mr. speaker, in this very room in which i stand, this very chamber, right over my right-hand shoulder is a sign that says in god we trust. the rotunda in the capitol, a chapel that's been in use since 1955 as a place where members go to pray for divine guidance in debating the issues of the day. a stained glass window there shows president george washington kneeling in prayer and the words of saum 16:1 surround him, preserve me, o god, for in thee i put my trust. and the holy bible rests on that altar. i'll grant you, the first amendment has been badly interpreted by the u.s. supreme court, and the 10
's something on that, may be religion, maybe it says he's a muslim, i don't know. maybe he doesn't want that. or he may not have one. but i will tell you this, if he wasn't born in this country, it's one of the great scams -- >> these aren't exactly cheerleaders for black participation in the republican party. donald trump, mitt romney genuflected to that guy in the campaign. let the congressman talk. let j.c. talk. i don't know how you react to that. i want to know. >> chris, on the birther thing, i think that's a losing issue. >> why do the republicans push it? >> i can't speak for republicans. you don't hear me talking -- >> i think you want to chair the party. >> that's the reason -- >> you're going to have to speak for these clowns. >> for that reason. but, you know, you have to carry baggage of democrats that i have heard you over the years disagree with them. >> i have. >> i do think that there has to be a different tone -- >> do you agree these are dog whistles, these are signals to people we don't like black presidents, food stamps and -- >> the birther thing -- >> but the food stam

you bought a product manufactured in egypt. beyond the religion except for the real he can realists, what the poor of egypt want is a job. they want economic improvements and morsi knows he can't deliver on a reasonable time frame so he's ramming through this constitution hell for leather because he can do it now and wouldn't be able to do it later. bill: i was surprised 100,000 people came back into the streets. that's a strong statement against what he is doing. but the implications for that entire region, if egypt continues along this path are enormous. he fled the palace yesterday. that was the word that was used. whether he just went home for the night. but you say an arab culture, that's a big deal. why? >> he's perceived as having fled. demonstrators feel they drove him out an left in a panic. this is a macho surface effects culture. egypt remains the pivotal arab country. so the future of egypt is even more important than syria. so i'm concerned about real violence in the streets. the muslim brotherhood is extremely well organized. and the key question is how will the securi
teenagers were brutally massacred after being tortured and raped under the name of islam and religion. to be honest with you, all i am interested in is just saving one life. if i can save one life, i can die in peace. i know the arguments and many of them are political but for me, it is an issue of practicality and it is an issue of saving lives. >> do you want to jump in? >> if i can get one piece of advice to the obama administration is to do the exact opposite of my good friend. never, ever show modesty when you are negotiating with middle easterners. [laughter] windows something about trade. we know something about negotiations. you go to a negotiation with limited negotiation and you lose everything. this is the attitude you need to have. >> i wanted to ask a question about the relationship about a strategy of economic pressure which the u.s. in the west is pursuing against iran and human rights. i would phrase it this way -- the u.s. clients and the p-5 claim and there is evidence for it that this has devastated the oil exports for iran -- there's a counter argument that sometim
think the attacks by republicans on the president the personal attacks of -- as religion and where he grew up and his citizenship and birth certificate, all of that, bothered enough people that progressives and african-americans that turnout was up because of that. i think that kind of sleazy politics really backfired on him. maybe there is a lesson there, i hope. >> bill: michael they're still counting ballots like in new jersey and new york because of hurricane sandy, there were some ballots -- paper ballots they couldn't get in. every day the president's margin keeps growing to the point where he's got 51% of the vote now. mitt romney, 47%. 47%. >> i think president obama's the first democrat in -- since roosevelt to break 50 and he's broken it twice, right? >> the first to do it twice. i think johnson did it once. >> of course, johnson did it once. that's right. get somebody in here that knows something. not that you don't. >> hey, thanks a lot! >> not just the politics aspect. >> that's right. of course
about leadership, and they were testing, you know, asking questions about faith and religion. which is fine to do, but not in this country, because clause 3, article 6 of our constitution specifically forbids religious questioning. >> general benjamin davis jr. was the first black to finish from west point. he went through an entire year where no one even spoke to him because he was black. do you believe that you're giving in to them by leaving? what if you stayed? what if you said, no matter what you do to me, i am going to win and beat you at this battle? why leave? >> yeah, i get that question a lot. i didn't come to west point to get a west point degree. i couldn't care less about graduating from west point. what i wanted to do was become an officer, all right? so that's what was important to me and that's what i was working towards. and i'm not being beaten, going through the channels here haven't been difficult for me, classes haven't been difficult. i've generally had a fair amount of success with my time as a cadet. and anybody who thinks i'm just giving up and walking away
internationally recognized human rights and freedoms, such as the freedom of religion, expression, association and assembly and the rights to a fair trial and democratic elections anywhere in the world. that was the legislation that we reported in two of our committees. i might tell you it was overwhelming support that we should make it global. senator kyl talked about that, and others i'm sure will do also. when you look at h.r. 6156, you will see the exact language that we have in our magnitsky bill, with one exception -- anywhere in the world is changed to russia. i am disappointed by that. i join with senator kyl in that disappointment. i think it would have been much better if we incorporated the international standards, the global provisions. i think it's very important congress pass this bill. i strongly support it. i support the effort of getting this to the president as quickly as possible. but, madam president, it's a clear message here. this bill is our standard. we will be holding countries to this standard. we will look for other opportunities to attach these provisions to other t
